Newly available from Michael Moore Trio:
I am happy to announce the availability of two trio discs recorded a few years ago for the 'Between the Lines' label: 'Monitor', from 1999, and 'Air Street' from 2003.
Both feature keyboardist Cor Fuhler and cellist Tristan Honsinger. Besides piano Cor Fuhler plays Hammond Organ and a homemade string/keyboard hybrid he named the keyolin. The sound of the keyolin is made with an Indonesian bow and the pitches are chosen on a touch-sensitive keyboard creating a sometimes otherworldly sound, especially in conjunction with Tristan's beautiful cello sound.
With the exception one through-composed number the pieces are either completely improvised or improvisations based on simple points of departure.
To my ears the music still sounds fresh and unpredictable.
